GGMud / News: Recent posts

GGMud 0.9.2 released!

A lot of news since 2007 when I officially released on SF the last version, here is a short extract of the changelog for the differences since 0.8.0:

  • Added new lua command filter_function that let you filter every line received from the mud with LUA. Filter function MUST return a boolean, if the boolean is false the filtered text is not show nor processed by the ggmud internal engine.
  • Added a new preset of aliases/triggers/lua script for the italian mud Lumen & Umbra, while these may not be used directly in other muds they are useful for learning some GGMud programming basics.
  • Reduced the size of the default font on Windows and increased the default size of the main window from 600x400 to 800x600.
  • New build system based on CMake, it allows easily to build on linux every GGMud version, the old system is still available using make -f Makefile.legacy.
  • The lua script you specify on the configuration does not need anymore a full absolute path to be loaded, if the script has no path we'll search for it in the GGMud configuration directory.
  • GGMud is now distributed with GTK 2.24.10 on windows.
  • GGMud for OSX is now a NATIVE intel only 10.5+ binary (but you can build yourself an X11 or 10.4 or PPC version from sources if you have the skills to do so).
  • Added menu option to clear the review buffer.
  • Implemented #SLOW, #STEP, #STOP, #OK commands with semantics similar to ZMUD ones:
  • LUA now supports SQL through SQLite3 (builtin) and the official luasql interface (
  • Added new panel for adding/editing/removing substitutions.
  • Variables can now be removed from gui.
  • Now after you click a button the focus will be moved on the input line (and not on the button) and the input line if not empty will be selected.
  • Improved #message command, now the first parameter must be one of info, warning, error (case insensitive) and it determines the icon to use for the (not modal) popup.
  • Added #grep command to search for strings in your review buffer.
  • Now you can specify double quotes or brackets ( "" or [] ) around arguments for lua funcions, this allows you to pass strings containing the , and ) character.
  • Implemented ZMud like review buffer activation and navigation with PGUP/DOWN.
  • Now it's possible to send LARGE quantities of text to the mud through cut&paste without crashing it.
  • New autoupdate function, will ask for the latest version from a support site, this one will open the download page in your browser if you choose to update.
  • Fixed dependencies in makefile.
  • Initial MSP support.
  • Fixed crash with MCCP in certain situations.
  • Added URL detection in output window, URLs will be underlined and clickable if you enable this.
  • Implemented command line switch "-nohome" to tell GGMud to use the program directory to save his config files, this is useful to be able to have a "portable" GGMud on a USB stick.

V0.5: OSX package updated

Updated the OSX app bundle, the older version had a serious bug that caused the requirement of a fink installed gtk+2! Now it should works without any external dependency except the X11 apple server (X11User.pkg on Panther/Tiger installation DVD).

Finally the 0.5 release!

I'm releasing after two years in which I've done a LOT of work of the client but all the work has been available only through CVS. This version uses GTK2, has LUA scripting support, includes a lot of improvements like trigger classes, timer events and has a better ANSI parser... The OSX version is distributed as APP Bundle and the Win32 version as self-extracting installer with GTK libs included. It's not as complete as I wanted it to be for the release 1.0 so it's still 0.5!

GGMud 0.2.1 released!

This is a minor release, not many new features but some bug fix.

I've just added to the project page the GTK 1.3 libraries for Windows, those libraries are needed to use the Windows version of GGMud.
